A Canadian warship confiscated 500kg of heroin from a boat in the Indian Ocean today. This was one of the biggest interceptions they’ve ever made, and military officials claimed it as a victory in the war on drugs. They’re wrong.
This interception is another sure sign of how our police and military are being defeated in this impossible war we are making them fight.
Bigger Busts Are Signs Of Defeat
Police always like to trumpet it as a sign of success when they make the biggest bust ever. They pretend that intercepting bigger drug shipments, or busting bigger marijuana gardens, means they are winning their futile war.
In fact, these increasingly larger interceptions means that police are failing miserably. The expanding size of smuggler’s loads, and the growing size of marijuana gardens, just means that the underground market is bigger and better than ever before.
If the so-called war on drugs was succeeding, then the intercepted shipments of illegal drugs would be getting smaller in both size and number. Victory in the drug war would be the day when there were no more shipments to intercept.
When border agents are intercepting bigger shipments, it is a sign that shipments are getting bigger, and therefore that more product is getting through.
Busting bigger gardens just means that marijuana growers are producing more bud than ever before.
